Bill Maher Apologizes For Using “The N Word”

Kathy Griffin is not the only TV celebrity in hot water. She’s been dealing with the backlash of an image of a beheaded Donald Trump she was holding. The spotlight has now shifted to Bill Maher as he has issued an apology after he said the N-word during a conversation with Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse on Friday night. Maher said “Friday nights are always my worst night of sleep because I’m up reflecting on the things I should or shouldn’t have said on my live show. Last night was a particularly long night as I regret the word I used in the banter of a live moment. The word was offensive and I regret saying it and am very sorry.” HBO issued a statement vowing to cut out the word in future airings of the show and said “Bill Maher’s comment last night was completely inexcusable and tasteless. We are removing his deeply offensive comment from any subsequent airings of the show.”
